Lady Cards win two
Last week was another busy week for the Lady Cardinals. The Lady Cards found themselves with two wins and one loss and an incomplete game due to the weather.
On Monday, April 19, the Cardinals traveled to Tremont. The Lady Cardinals were still on a high from the previous week with all their victories. Kayla Yarbrough took the mound and Jasmine Houston was catcher. The Lady Cards won 12-l. Everyone scored in the game. Yarbrough had eight strikeouts.
Tuesday, April 20, the Myrtle Hawks came to Cardinal country. This was a division game. The Lady Cards were ready to take on the Hawks and bring another win to their belts. The Lady Hawks thought that this was going to be an easy win, but the Lady Cards proved them wrong. Yarbrough took the mound with Houston catching. Potts Camp won 14-4. Those scoring for the Lady Cards were Houston (1), Yarbrough (3), Megan Watkins (l), Ashton Gandy (l), Macy Watkins (3), Kaitlyn Skelton (3) and Shelby Davis (2). Yarbrough had nine strikeouts.
Thursday, the Lady Cards traveled to West Union for a division game. This game was a must for the Lady Cards to be in the playoffs. The Potts Camp girls were very upbeat and very confident they could pull off a win. This was the most exciting game the Lady Cardinals had played all year. Yarbrough took the mound with Houston catching. Both teams found themselves with three up, three down. This was the pattern for both teams until the bottom of the seventh inning. West Union got a hit to left field and scored. The game was over, with West Union winning 1-0. Yarbrough had 10 strikeouts for the game.
Coach Loden said the girls had nothing to be ashamed of, that they played the best game he had seen them play this year. He told the Lady Cards that he was very proud of them.
Friday night found the Lady Cards traveling to Olive Branch. Potts Camp got its inning in and Olive Branch was up to bat when the game was called because of bad weather.
Afterwards the Lady Cards and parents treated the seniors, Ashton Gandy and Hannah Goolsby, to a night out.
This ended the Lady Cards’ year with an 11-13 record.
